Doug Steele

5 Months

 

Waiting for another no name
P.A. > physician assistant (as if time lives for them).

 

W a i t i n g, still waiting, and wait
more in this
dim              empty                room.

Waiting for:
a duplicitous congrats on my   shifting       shoulder
a too late lament for all not present. Right…

My non-whisky      breath               at
five minutes/five hours/five days/five weeks
FIVE damn months (on the tight r o p e)
is still waiting entrance to the crave free zone.

Dispensing    sober    angel      harps
through Mr. dim empty room,
charging forward I affirm
my compelling non-award day is here.

As I s i t s i t and s i t
awaiting yet another
dour empty P.A.
